A WIP update

Lots of WIP photos to share today.

First up is Carriage House Samplings' Quaker Stocking, which I've been stitching on Saturdays when I can. It's on 40ct Navy Bean with DMC.


Then there's Bluebird's Message, which I've been doing a length of thread on here and there. It's on the left-over 32ct Toitoi I had from Strawberry Garden using WDW and DMC.


And last but not least here's The Token, which is so nearly finished! I'm picking this up most days and just doing a length or two of thread as well.


As you can see, my stitching is all over the place but I'm working towards some finishes. I'm also working on the next round of the HAED RR, and this weekend I'm putting in some stitches on Tomboy too for the HAED SAL challenge.

I should have even more stitching time over the next three weeks as:

1. I've only got a few more hours worth of work to finish and then that's it for our NZ company (we're in the middle of setting it up in the UK).

2. Because of no work (see 1. above) we're flat broke. So no going anywhere or spending any money. I'll be staying in stitching and creating meals that try to use up the last of the ingredients in the food cupboard!

  10. Your stitching is great, Nicki. Are you using the called-for DMC with the CHS stocking?

    I have to laugh at your comments about eating whatever's left. I've done that a lot and it's pretty surprising how creative you can be. LOL! Are you terribly excited about returning to the UK?
